Personal Information

MGN collects certain personal data directly or indirectly from users, from Third Parties, or through other means. We also collect information in the course of conducting our business operations or in furtherance of our legitimate business interests. To create user accounts, authorized users must provide certain contact and account information such as name, email address, billing address, and phone number in order to access, license and download images. MGN uses this information for legitimate business purposes including: to process your invoices; to maintain or update your MGN account; to send you updates about special offers, services, promotions, and noteworthy or breaking news and events; to fulfill a service to you; to contact you; to comply with the law or to comply with legal process served on us; to contact you about material changes to this Privacy Policy or Site Usage Agreement, if necessary; to disclose to third parties as part of any corporate reorganization process, including, but not limited to mergers, acquisitions, and sales of all or substantially all of our assets, or in the event of bankruptcy. Except as specifically set forth in this Privacy Policy, MGN does not sell, share or rent information about its customers or users to third parties for their marketing or promotional purposes. MGN will retain your personally identifiable information for as long as commercially reasonable to carry out our business purpose, or as long as legally required. MGN does not intentionally collect Sensitive data.

Automatically Collected Information

As is true of most websites, when you access and use the Site, we gather certain information automatically. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users' movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. If you are logged into your user account, we are able to link this automatically collected data to such account.


MGN has a number of operational functions in place to protect the confidentiality of personal information. Perfect security on the Internet does not exist, and MGN does not warrant that the Site is impenetrable or invulnerable to hackers.


Please be aware that the Site may contain links to other sites that are covered by their own privacy policies. MGN is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites and we encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site. We recommend that our users read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.


MGN may send emails to users and potential users about our services, special offers, promotions, and noteworthy or breaking news and events. To do so, we may engage a third-party Processor to process your Personal Data. This Processor will be subject to binding contractual obligations to only process the Personal Data in accordance with our prior written instructions; and use measures to protect the confidentiality and security of the Personal Data; together with any additional requirements under applicable law. You will have the ability to opt-out of receiving these types of emails if you so choose.

MGNdirect Sponsorship Digital Marketing Services

MGN does not rent or sell email lists to third parties for their promotional purposes. However, MGNdirect does provide Sponsorship Services under contract that include Ad Campaigns for our Sponsors that wish to reach MGN News Industry Contacts. In addition to MGNOnline Site Ads, MGN will initiate email marketing to our Affiliates and other News Industry Contacts to introduce our Sponsors in a variety of ways. Your Personal Data is automatically shared with these MGNdirect Sponsors ONLY when you open one of these emails and click or interact with links or content contained within these emails. You will have the ability to opt-out of receiving these types of emails if you so choose. MGN does not market to the European Union and so the GDPR does not apply to us.

Changes of MGN's Privacy Policy

MGN reserves the right to change our online Privacy Policy and modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we decide to make any material changes to our privacy statement, we will notify you via email or by posting a prominent notice on our Site including the home page and other places we deem appropriate, at least thirty (30) days prior to implementing the change so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner.

Legal Disclaimer

We may disclose personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law or to comply with a legal process served on our Site.
